Strengthened 4K Recording
Fujifilm X-T2

Following the earlier and long-awaited for X-Pro2, Fujifilm has released their latest model, the X-T2, which aims to present a high-performance technology that is closer to the DSLR level. The mirrorless X-T2 continues the X-T1’s retro SLR styling but implements a couple of button function changes that put even more important features at your fingertips Apart from a slight increase in its volume, the X-T2 looks very much like the old X-T1. The optimized programming of a brighter 2.36-million pixel electronic viewfinder, and relocating the AF point joystick to the back of the camera makes the camera much easier to operate. The expected magnesium alloy casing is both water and dustproof, so it’s safe to use in the rain.

Using the same central viewfinder style of the X-T1 model and loaded with an APS-C-format 24.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS III photosensitive element, its highest ISO now extends to 51,200 (up from 12,800). Its biggest improvement is its autofocus system. Increasing its focus detection points to 325, the X-T2 has shortened its re-focusing speed, and also allows it to focus under -3EV ambient light. Fuji has also improved the X-T1’s video recording limitations. Supporting a continuous 10-minute long 4K video shoot, the latest model has a built-in direct external sound interface producing professional results. The camera’s flip-out screen deserves some attention. It uses an innovating dual hinge system that we’ve not seen before and is uber-useful for low-angle still and video shots. With the launch of the X-T2 comes the optional VPB-XT2 battery grip. After loading in three batteries, the camera’s performance is much more robust, with its continuous shooting speed increased from 8fps to 11fps, and the video recording duration extended to 30 minutes.
